A Short Film About Sampling

Subject: Digital criminals. The documentary

Watch for the new doc on how individual,s, apply for grants and funding, then crank out crap on an epic scale. Spend grant monies on personal property in the guise of videomakers.

Subject: good wise material
un repaso lúcido y claro sobre las razones del sampling de música.

ÿquién crea realmente?

ÿacaso los músicos sampleados no deberían estar orgullosos de que los sampleen?

Subject: turn tables, samplers, lawyers...
this documentary sets a positive point in the issue of sampling. do we have the right to sample? yes, we do. but many fools must be told yet. greedy industry wants to control music, but you can't stop the rain from falling.

interesting idea for avoiding problems with turntables: what about a "reverse" turntable that just turns counterwise? no sample will be recognized, so no one is sued... a temporary solution in these dark times...

the plain interview style is my kind of documentary. no one but the affected part has something to say about the subject that's exposed in the film. very fairly edited. miss more word from harry allen...

excellent job!

Subject: great,something needs to be said on this subject
i like it. i think this subject should be addressed. I am glad to see some of these artist talk about it. especially the underground smaller artist who are trying to make it who need the samples. who can't afford big studio fees and to pay for little pieces of sounds. hip hop is partly ruined now. there are no more pauls boutique albums where you pull in nostalgic samples that bring back the old school. el-p said it perfect. i am going to sample the shit out of that and make a song to submit in the contest he put it beautifuly

Subject: A fine piece
I have read several of McLeod's works, and find them to be quite good in mentioning and analyzing some of the absurdities inherent in intellectual property law, particularly copyright. This short film is quite a good introduction to some of the issues inherent in the fair use debate. I believe it skews a bit toward the liberal end of the fair use spectrum, but given the content industries' relentless and one-sided public relations campaign against ANY explicitly unsanctioned, uncompensated, or unlicensed use of protected works, I am less concerned with the slant of this piece than I might be otherwise. I will not hesitate to use this for my copyright and licensing classes.
